Reyhan Korpe


Scamander, the largest river of the Troad, flows from Mount Ida past Troy and into the Hellespont. Large number of ancient settlements (prehistoric, classical, Byzantine) are located near its banks. Scanmander was also personified as the River-God of the region. According to Homer, Scamander attacks Achilles to help the Trojans. Since he was an important figure in the topography and mythology of the Trojan War, Scamander was often depicted in ancient art and on coins. This study focuses on the image of Scamander both in ancient mythology and art.
